Language is something we are constantly immersed in. Although essential in academic life, reading and writing skills are necessary to successfully navigate life beyond school in both personal and professional pursuits. My approach to teaching is to not just impart skills, but to develop fluency and confidence in students. As an honor's graduate from SUNY Purchase's Creative Writing department, I developed the skills to help students improve their academic performance and continue on a path to success.

During my Undergraduate, I worked extensively in proofreading and writing development. As part of my coursework, I met regularly with the Poetry Society of America's chapbook award winners to workshop my writing and to discuss literary theory. Beyond my work with the English language I have tutored Spanish at a college level and translate Spanish texts in my free time.

Suny Purchase was also designated by Nelson Rockefeller as the "arts college" of State University program, offering ample courses in both visual and performing arts, which I took full advantage of and feel confident in my ability to assist in those fields. I have eight years experience as a concert percussionist as well, and have worked with local elementary schools teaching percussion lessons to children.
